Kanye West & Kim Kardashian Decide On Baby Name: North West

E! Online is reporting that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have named their baby North, making the little girl's full name North West... as in the direction. Or the common crossword puzzle answer. Or other things that are only jokes. (TMZ's got the birth certificate. This actually happened.)

Since the birth of their first daughter five days ago, Kim and Kanye have been fairly silent, with Kim only telling Ryan Seacrest in an email, "Can't believe it! It's so crazy!" 

What's crazier is that little North isn't the first famous North—remember the 1994 movie of the same name, starring Elijah Wood? It was about a kid who traveled the world searching for better parents than his own, which... North West might do one day, who knows? Also, that movie sucked. (16 percent on Rotten Tomatoes!)

Either way, we hope little North got her mom's eyes and her dad's wallet. Welcome to the planet, little one. You're probably gonna have a weird time here.

July 22: HyunA Monkeys Around

HyunA, the K-pop star who gained global recognition from co-starring in Psy's "Gangnam Style" video, is teasing her new single "Red" in a very sexy, very odd new photoshoot. The singer poses amid two hunky beefcake wearing humongous, furry monkey heads. HyunA's new music will reportedly showcase a more "mature" side from the singer and while this isn't the look we were necessarily imagining, it does amp up our anticipation.

Get to know more about HyunA in our video feature here.
